Philosophy

Post by Mr. Fountain on Mon Jan 26, 2015 3:01 pm

Philosophy thread!

Even if you know nothing about philosophers, feel free to post here. To start this off, I'll just say that I'm mostly a nihilist.

I know that I'm perfectly capable of using Google, but I would hate to deprive you the opportunity to talk about it: define nihilism?

There is no inherent meaning, purpose, or value to life and the universe in general. Any meaning, purpose, or value imposed upon them are purely abstract in nature, that is that they are fictions made by people.

... That's less philosophy and more like objective truth.

I watched the majority of 8-bit Philosophy on youtube. Very educational XD

Are there any other similar series' that can educate troglodytes like myself?

PBS Idea Channel combines philosophical thinking with modern entertainment. I fucking love it. Go watch their video on Attack on Titan for starters.

Oh god, yes. Transhumanism. I am so hard into that. I don't even understand why some people are so against it.

Can I safely say that literally all of the regular members are Transhumanists?

Man. If you're personality and memories are backed up into a computer, and then you die and they make a clone of you with that personality, is it still you or is it someone else who was exactly you? T.T I don't want my memories to live forever, I want ME to live forever.

Thats why you wouldn't just upload your personality and memories. You upload your consciousness. You completely subvert your human body. You can then link your uploaded consciousness with a body, robotic of course, then if the body dies, you aren't really affected.
Except that you lose the best damn Mr. T android you ever had... DAMN THEM!

All of that is based on the assumption that consciousness can be separated from the brain.

Science will find a way. Nodney has put it into my head that I can upload my conciousness into a Mr. T robot, and no one will take that away from me.

You know, I'd actually really REALLY like to hear your opinions and knowledge about philosophy, Thade. You just seem like the person who would know alot about this particular subject.
